2017 Annual Fundraiser : Multimedia Performance of Jay Bernard's 'Surge'

Come and join us for an exciting multimedia performance by poet Jay Bernard of their work 'Surge' on Monday 4 December. We shall also be raising funds for the work of the GPI.

'Surge' revisits the case of the 1981 New Cross Massacre in which thirteen young black people were killed in a house fire. Using archive film, audio, video and their own unique voice, Bernard asks what can be learned from the New Cross case and the subsequent activism it motivated during this current age of Brexit, the Grenfell fire tragedy, the startling revival of far right extremism and Trump.

Jay Bernard is from London and works as a writer and film programmer at the British Film Institute's Flare (London's LGBT film festival). In 2016 they were the GPI's inaugural Poet-in Residence as part of the 50th anniversary celebration of New Beacon Books. We look forward to seeing you at what promises to be stimulating evening.
